Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We generate degenerate-frequency, cross-polarized photon pairs for the first time in dispersion-shifted fiber using dual-frequency, orthogonally-polarized pump pulses. A ratio of coincidence to accidental-coincidence counts near 20 is obtained.
